Comprehensive Psychiatric Evaluation

A comprehensive psychiatric evaluation may be necessary to diagnose any number of emotional, behavioral or developmental disorders.

The evaluation involves gathering information about the child’s or adolescent’s present behaviors as well as information on his or her physical, genetic, environmental, social, cognitive (thinking), emotional and educational history.

The goal of the evaluation is to identify a diagnosis (if appropriate) and to provide treatment recommendations.
